  • Tree algae around shut lines & Inside condensation

    Just after a bit of advice here please.

    We have a white *****-J, and have noticed the last couple times I have washed it that around the **** lines I get loads of dirt splutting out, especially when jet washing ot hose piping.

    I have also notices some greeny tree algae around the tailgate shuts, especially around the top side.

    Whats the quickest and most efficient way to get rid of this without splashing the inside of the car?

    In addition, im notiticing the inside of the car getting lots of condensation, and when its icy outside, even surface ice on the inside of the windscreen.

    There is nothing wet inside the car, seats are dry, carpets are dry, but it just baffles me.

    Can anyone help with both issues please?

    Thanks.

    Hi regarding the tree algae have had a lot of success removing this from cars with soft tops mix 1 part baby bottle cleaning flued with 3 parts water i.e miltons brush on then wipe off inside the shut lines I would wipe over with the mixture on a cloth then remove the same way take care this will remove the colour from your cloths etc ware gloves

      Try running the air-con on full blast for a while this will help get the moisture out the car, Also check the doors have had the rubber bungs at the bottom removed.

          No issues in removing them removing them will allow the water to came out rather than sitting in the door.
